More Pink

Psynopsis Pink Chloe Sandals
Sorry, I seem to be working in shifts today. I was so keen on showing you my ‘brown doesn’t have to be boring’ solution, but then I realised I want to say a bit more about it…

The pink dress is a diy project made from a silk slip and an old turquoise t-shirt. But I am finding pink very difficult to wear – it just seems to 'swallow me up' and the slinkyness of the dress also makes me feel a bit too body conscious (not to speak of the problem that anything I eat will show as a bulge in the waist area).


Now, I’m a big fan of Phoebe Philo’s idea of wearing a short leather skirt over a shirt dress – so perhaps this could be the solution.

ALSO I need to show you my new shoes! How’s this for
nude footwear? I’m in love!

The sandals are very pretty, but the pink dress/outfit looks better without the brown thingy ( the leather skirt). xx

I'm not sure if I like the pink dress by itself, I prefer it with the leather skirt breaking it up a bit. I do like the pops of turquoise.

Nice shoes!

I love how you layered this, so unique!
and the Chloe shoes are so gorgeous :)

Anna Jane said...

The sandals are gorgeous and look very very versatile - go Chloe!

I like the idea of the skirt over the dress, although I can see where you're coming from about the "swallowing pink effect" - I get that a lot! I think ideally, your skin tone would suit coral and nude pinks as well as berry/dark magenta shades too :)
